Almost over the limit

I have just got back from a trip to Florida where the weather was warm and the sun was shining.  Apart from when there was torrential rain and a thunderstorm!

I loved these shadows on the porch where the hanging basket shadow looked like a palm tree.

This is the sporty little Chevvy I hired.


I spent 40 minutes at the beach in 80F sunshine.


And this pelican floated by while Betsy and I were having lunch at Capt. Hiram's.

When I flew out to Florida I had 10Kg spare capacity for when I came back, but in the end had to leave some things behind because I was well over the limit.  And that was with 10Kg hand luggage allowance and 23Kg stowed baggage allowance!

However I have brought some fabby things back with me.

Placemats from Bed Bath & Beyond and kitchen tools from the Dollar Store to use with my Gelli Plate.

Stencils and Stamps

Assorted bits and pieces

Manila folders, a Dylusions journal, some Kraft card and a sheet of foam to make stamps.

A very nice box to keep things in!  Gesso, Gel Medium, Golden paints, and other things

And Kaere was selling off things from her online store so I bought lots of things from her and had them sent to Betsy's house.

Of course, now the problem is where to store it all!
